The men, also playing at Glendale' Paseo Tennis Club, did likewise with four 6-0, 6-0 singles wins. Sasha Modica, at No. 1; Shimon Murakami, at No. 4; Max Wightman, at No. 5 and Eduardo Cuoto, at No. 6, all had perfect wins.
The men also had straight set wins at all three doubles flights. Both tournaments conclude Wednesday with the winners earning spots in the NJCAA National Championships.
